Samsung Tab S3 Oreo Update and More
It is actually fair to say that software updates for Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 are not regular anymore. However, if you guys have one, you may be thinking about its eligibility for the Android 10 update. Well, we are going to discuss Samsung Tab S3 Oreo Update and More.
Android tablets, just like their phone counterparts, receive periodic Android OS updates albeit much more slowly actually. Well, the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 tablet — a flagship LTE tablet from 2017 actually — has now been updated to Android 9 Pie. Sure, Android 10 would be preferable. However, that will probably never happen considering the Tab S3 launched along with Android 7 Nougat as well.
Samsung Tab S3 Oreo Update and More
After a really long wait, the Android Pie update is now available for the Verizon Tab S3. That is coming in as software version T827VVRU3CSH4, the OTA update is rolling out as an OTA starting today actually. Besides the Pie, the CSH4 update also gets you September 2019 security patch. However, what is so surprising here is that Verizon didn’t mention Android 9 Pie as part of the changelog that limits itself to the latest security patches actually.
So, given Android Pie was basically released as build CSH3 for the Global variant. We believe build CSH4 for the Verizon tablet is definitely its Android Pie OS upgrade actually. We think Verizon would be updating the changelog soon. Also, the build of the update, PPR1.180610.011, also refers to the Android 9 Pie code too.
Samsung will soon begin rolling out the Android 9 Pie update to the Galaxy Tab S3 as well. The slate has been cleared via the Wi-Fi Alliance to receive Pie, which is gonna arrive by the end of June 2019.
Samsung is also rolling out a new Tab S3 update as software version T825XXU3BSD1. The update basically installs a new patch for April 2019 and is also available for the LTE variant of the slate. The OS is still based on Android Oreo, although the Tab S3 is expected in order to get an update to Android Pie really soon.

Galaxy Tab S3 Android 10 update
It was launched with Android 7.0, the Tab S3 has also received its share of two Android OS updates in Oreo and Pie. This is why the Android 10 update, which will come as One UI 2.0, won’t really come out for Tab S3.
The Tab S3 remains ineligible for the Android 10 update as well.
